  • Need help converting PCD to parts list.

    Just came along this thread by a member here. I'd like to follow along this guys selection of woofers, tweets, and xovers but I'm stuck at the PCD screenshot. I'm not sure how to get the actual parts list by looking at it. This is the thread I'm refering to.

      WOW what a fast reply, Thank you. I'm a novice and have another question. Once I buy these 10 parts, plus the 2 woofers and 2 tweeters and build my own box that's it right? Would I be missing anything? Sorry for the dumb question but I don't want to miss anything.

      Also are there some specific brands I should be looking for when picking those 10 parts? Brands I should avoid at all costs? Thanks.

        Hmm, I'm so lost. I see voltages for the same uF. If someone could link me to the parts them self I'd appreciate it. And also the crossover layout.

          Actually, Dayton parts (PE house brand) are pretty good. the other guy used premium crossover components that cost quite a bit more.

          BTW, I'm always a bit wary about simulated responses - there a lot of ways to mess up the sim, and you can end up with something
          that sounds quite different than you had imagined. If you want to build something, I'd suggest a proven design. Start with a budget and
          what size box you want.

            $200 for the pair of bookshelves.
            Box size doesn't matter, whatever would be better.
            I really want to use the Silver Flutes though. 6.5 preferably.

            I seen some of the 5 1/2 builds. Could I use those designs but with a 6.5 or would that mess things up?

              Consider this 7" 2-way kit: http://www.diysoundgroup.com/speaker...akers-kit.html

              They are within your budget, all parts included easy-to-buy kit form, and I can attest that they deliver excellent bang for the buck. No Silver Flute though, just silver woofer. ;)

                  I'm kind of an aesthetic freak and I really dislike those silver cones. Any other kits that use a Wool or Carbon Fiber cone? lol

                        Yeah, I'm going to stay stuck on that Silver Flute.

                          You'll need 10 parts for each speaker not ten parts total. And although I have had pretty good luck with my PCD crossovers I would also agree with Don that not all sims sound as good as they look.

                            My only problem with the simulated design from the first post is where did he get the measurement for the 8 ohm woofer from? I would be willing to do a sim with the 4 ohm version, as there are reputable measurements for that woofer, if you're okay with a 4 ohm speaker.

                              I don't have an amplifier that is can handle a 4 ohm load. The Pioneer VSX 821 is 8 or 6 ohm compatible.
